Poetic, humorous, visually stunning, multilayered, a musical masterpiece and so beautiful it will make your heart bleed, this film is rather dark and tragic however and not entirely suitable for the youngest among us. I don’t think it ever was intended to be. A stunning poetic interpretation and a personal favourite.
This piece was one of the best applications of stop-motion that I have ever seen. The beauty was in the simplicity of the shots, along with the vivid imagery. I adored this movie like nothing I have before. Cartoons just don’t hold the same magic that they used to; this movie changed my perceptions of what it meant to be “animated”. If you couldn’t notice, I loved it. Watch it. A lot.
